Pontefract (Sunday)

It’s very rare that you can boast a decent prediction but I was particularly proud of my Great St.Wilfrid first and second in yesterday’s renewal.

What made it particularly sweet was that the picks and the reasoning behind them were up in the public domain on Thursday evening.

The twitter trolls were conspicuous by their absence yesterday I see – smarting in their grime filled hovels, seething that someone had actually backed a 25/1 winner and was enjoying it! And boy, did it feel great!
